Ralf Rangnick, Manchester United’s interim manager, has stated that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was fired due to worries that the squad will not qualify for the UEFA Champions League this season.
Man United has shed four points in their past two Premier League games and presently sits in fifth place in the league with 40 points from 24 games.
The Red Devils’ prospects of qualifying for the Champions League are now in jeopardy, with West Ham, Arsenal, Wolves, and Tottenham all vying for a top-four spot in the Premier League.
Rangnick was reported by MEN as stating at his post-match news conference following Man United’s Premier League 1-1 tie with Southampton over the weekend, “It has always been an issue since Ole departed the club.”
“That was certainly one of the reasons he had to leave the club, and of course, outcomes like today’s don’t help matters.”
“We were one or two goals up against Villa, Burnley, and tonight, and we gave up two points.”
This can happen once, but not three times, and the situation would be different if those points were present, but they are not. This is the situation we find ourselves in.
“We have to realise the truth and obviously, with results like today’s, it doesn’t make it any easier to finish fourth at the end,” he stated.
